Our campaign is in support of a little-known local Park District facility called Keay Nature Learning Center. The park is underutilized by our community. The environment is mostly healthy, but there are a number of invasive plant species which impact the native landscape. Working with the Park District, our group will work to eradicate native plant species without damaging the environment and to make the Nature Center more attractive to animals and people alike. One idea we have is to build and paint birdhouses to donate to Nature Center. These may help to attract and house a wider variety of birds, and they have the added benefit of being pleasing to people. We hope that the publicity from this effort will draw attention - and visitors - to the Nature Center.

In our meadow, we will plant native plants which are used to our area's weather and rainfall. It's 50 feet long and about 33 feet wide, and will have a path to walk through the meadow. Then we will place signs to show the different plants and why the help, and signs teaching about the different pollinators, and why they are important.

Our project will research and share information on Monarch Butterflies and Hummingbirds, while creating a hands on environment so our fellow classmates and school community can learn about these amazing creatures, while enjoying native plants that help support their existence.

The garden will give our amazing teachers a living classroom filled with real examples for their life-cycle, biodiversity and adaptation lessons. We will weed, lay weed cloth add free mulch from our local high school, then with the children's help add pollinator friendly plants that are local to our area. We would love to plant Milkweed to help the Monarch butterfly's, Dutchman's Pipe for the swallowtails and many other plants to help our hardworking pollinators.

We brought in trash bags, gloves, and snake-grabbers and we cleaned up all around the school. We filled 3 large bags with trash!

In order to make a secure habitat for wildlife, we will make bird seed and hummingbird feeders, install a water fountain, plant more native flowering plants, and fruit trees.

The students will engage in learning as they research, design and implement a plan to enhance their school campus by creating an insect habitat, providing nesting sites for birds, planting native plants to Coastal Georgia while learning how these organisms work together and how we can preserve yourselves and the habitat.

Our project will provide sanctuary for local wildlife, including but not limited to birds and insects. While we have some plants already that attract critters, we would like to incorporate more native plantings, which will also allow this to be a low water use yard. Our plan is to remove the remaining sections of lawn, and replace them with native grasses and flowers that would attract the bird, insect, and other local animal populations, incorporating the new plantings with the ones already established.

I am going to create a team of people from my town. First, we are going to go door to door and ask people if they want to take action and save the bees. We will ask them to sign a petition saying they will not use harmful chemicals (pesticides, herbicides) on their property. We can also educate our neighbors about non-toxic methods to manage their yards. Second, we will go to town hall and ask to use public lands to plant bee gardens in the spring. A bee garden will include wildflowers, milk weed, bee homes, and a water bee bath with pebbles.
